Murder investigation at Tunbridge Wells recycling centre

Kent Police have arrested a man in his 40s on suspicion of murder after an incident at a council household waste recycling centre in Tunbridge Wells run by Cory Environmental.

Police were called to the address in North Farm Lane just after 6am on 9 March to discover a man had “sustained fatal injuries”. A local press report claimed it was a stabbing incident.

A police spokesman said: “It is being treated as a murder investigation, and a man in his 40s has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is currently in police custody.”

Police also confirmed that the two men were known to each other.

A Cory Environmental spokesperson said: “We are doing all we can to co-operate with the police investigation into the incident and support our staff at this difficult time.”

A Tunbridge Wells Borough Council statement read: “Due to an incident at the council’s depot on Monday 9 March there will be no recycling or rubbish collections today.”
